BackupBuddy supports File Transport Protocol (FTP) as a Remote Destination. FTP is the most common way of sending larger files between servers. Most web hosting accounts provide FTP access.
Adding FTS as a Remote Destination
- Once on the Remote Destinations page, click the +Add New button to add your FTP destination.
- From the Add New Destination page, configure the following destination settings:
- Destination name - Name of the new destination to create. This is for your convenience only.
- Server address - [Example:
ftp.foo.com]- FTP server address. Do not include
ftp://or any other prefixes. You may specify an alternate port in the format of
- Remote path (optional)
- Migration URL
- Optional, for migrations
- Archive limit
- Transfer mode
- Use FTPs encryption - Enable high security mode (not supported by most servers)
- Once you've entered all of your settings, click the +Add Destination button.
- Your new location will now show on the Remote Destinations page in BackupBuddy. If you need to change your settings, click the gear symbol to the right of the destination.
